As many of y'all know I am an RN. I pull a couple shifts a week at various ER thru a temping agency (allowing me to keep my skills sharp) but my main gig is with a well known plastic surgeon in the area.
Most of his work is very private (niche hospitals) and recovery takes place in a non traditional hospital setting etc.
Occasionally though and especially for pro-bono cases we will use area hospitals – Presbyterian is one of those hospitals.
According to the news, life is normal at Presbyterian sans the single isolation patient.
Nothing could be further from the truth. All elective surgeries have ceased – not even routed to different hospitals. If patients did there pre-surgery labs on campus they will now be delayed 21 additional days and have to retest. That's got to tell you something.
I'll post more info as I get it – supposedly legal has sent out a notice barring anyone discussing the matter but I am not their employee. more & updates at url
